As part of CYE’s mission to support the youth workforce field in New York City, we both create resources to inform practice and highlight tools and documents developed by our partners for the same purpose. On this page, you can find links to valuable materials that support employers, providers, and young people themselves. If you have any questions regarding these resources, please contact us here.

CareerPass Guide

CareerPass is a site visit program to provide NYC's young people exposure to some of the City’s highest profile companies.

In order to support employers in planning a successful CareerPass visit, we have put together this guide. It includes insights into what makes a successful visit, sample schedules, and answers to frequently asked questions.
